ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND COMMUNICATION SKILLS COURSE
Would you like to learn English or improve your current level of spoken and written English? Länsi-Suomen opisto offers a four month conversational course for Finnish and other language speakers. Lessons focus on sharpening one's speaking and communication skills, including a look at essential grammar, reading and writing techniques and an overview of English culture. It is ideally suited for people who have a basic understanding of English and would like to refresh their language skills for travel, business or other practical purposes. The course is also recommended for students who are planning to study abroad, but who do not particularly wish to study Academic English which might prove too complicated.
Optional: Open university course accredited by University of Jyväskylä for English Academic Reading (3 cr) and Interdisciplinary Communication Skills (3 cr).
A particular benefit is that we have visiting groups from other countries who attend for one or two weeks to practice their English and enjoy a cultural exchange with Finns. This facilitates the opportunity to talk about various aspects of their respective cultures, ranging from travel, culture, cuisine, society, professions and much more. Foreign groups are generally from Italy, Russia, Ukraine, Poland and France.
This study package includes accommodation, meals and tuition. The course is presented by a native English speaker.
